Kidde has recalled almost 500,000 dual-sensor smoke detectors in the U.S. and Canada because a manufacturing malfunction can compromise the devices' ability to detect smoke. Specifically, a yellow cap that was left on during manufacturing can cover one of the two smoke sensors, posing a risk of people not being alerted to a fire in their home.

Annual Spring Brush Pickup

Highway Department

by 
tbeck
 
Amherst’s annual spring brush pickup will begin the week of May 21st. Residents should have materials out at the street (not in the street) on the day of their scheduled Refuse day. However, depending on the volume of what is put out we may or may not get to it on the scheduled Refuse day. We can reassure you that it will get picked up. It may take approximately two to three weeks for us to complete the whole Town. Please have brush, logs and stumps out for pickup by May 21st if possible. The Town will collect large unmanageable piles of logs, brush, and tree stumps only. All material must be placed out the start of that week. This is the only time of year we will pick up piles that are not bundled and tied. No mixed piles containing lumber, concrete, railroad ties or non-organic materials will be collected. NOTE: The Compost facility will not take anything over 8 feet in length, so we will not pick up anything longer than 8 feet. Leaves, small trimmings and other yard waste should be put in containers, paper yard waste bags or bundled for collection by Modern Corporation on a weekly basis. The Highway Department will not pick up these materials during this spring brush pickup.
